It’s taken me a lot longer than 9 weeks (had to take 3 weeks off because of injury and being a single parent has meant I’ve only been able to run once or twice a week since it’s been dark early) but I’ve finally graduated!

Just wanted to give a bit of encouragement to anyone not able to keep up with the 3 x a week commitment - obviously that’s the ideal but it’s still possible to complete the programme more slowly and still so worth it. Feel super proud of myself today 😊
